Written by novelist and playwright J.M. Barrie, a young boy who can fly and who never gets old, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood on the island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, who have adventures and misadventures with fairies, mermaids, pirates, Native Americans and occasional real children from the real world.

Wendy Darling and her brothers are children he befriends while flying about off the island of Neverland. Peter is often accompanied on his flyabouts by Tinkerbell the fairy.

Once again the talented young Taos dancers who have worked hard on their parts all year, will take to the TCA stage to bring a well-loved, classic story to life via the magical medium of dance.

Kudos to Amber Vasquez and her brilliant crew of teachers, for the hard work and imaginative choreography that goes into these productions which are truly major theatrical events, worthy of getting dressed up for. It is the Ballet people!

Congratulations too, to all the young dancers for getting through the year of literal ballet boot camp and finally making it onto the stage!

The long preparation and effort that goes into these productions is grueling and often, for the young dancers en pointe, extremely painful. They make it look like they are mere feathers in a breeze but these kids are athletes with a capital A.
